This September marks the 10-year anniversary of the devastating terrorist attacks on America. As our nation prepares to reflect upon the events that took place September 11, 2001, a number of events are being planned nationwide in honor of those who lost their lives, as well as the servicemen and women of our country who continue to fight to protect our freedom.

The Heroes Music Festival will honor that anniversary with the first annual event to be held September 8–11, 2011 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga. The four day long festival will feature a variety of performances from artists of all genres. Rodney Atkins, Mark Wills and Lee Roy Parnell, among others, will be there to represent country music proudly. The live performances will take place across two independent stages at the 125,000-capacity Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Others included in the multi-dozen line-up of performers will be Delbert McClinton, Jonny Lang, Days of the New, Saving Abel, Skillet, Drowning Pool and more, with special guest appearances anticipated.

“We are pleased in the outpour of artists who are not only willing to share their talents, but understand the importance of the message and significance of Heroes Music Festival overall,” says Charles DeJournett, Heroes Music Festival founder. “This will be a memorable affair for all Americans and music enthusiasts from every corner of the country, and it’s the first time since the Capricorn days that McClinton and Parnell have come together to perform on the same stage! This you gotta see!”

Single day passes to the festival begin at $65 ($55 for Military/Civil Service), and the four-day passes begin at $99 ($85 for Military/Civil Service). To purchase tickets to the event click here.
